SE3 worked with AGAE Contractors on the LED lighting project. This task consisted of removing existing lights in Tollway maintenance facilities (M-3, M-4, M-5, M-11 and M-12) and replacing them with new LED lights. The light fixtures were furnished by the Illinois Tollway, delivered to the sites, and were properly hung and wired to the existing electrical system.

This task consisted of designing, demolishing, and remodeling of the M-2 Tollway maintenance facility. The scope of work included cleaning and resurfacing floors, painting, replacing ceiling, replacing sprinklers, cleaning ducts, and furnishing new furniture and appliances.
